This was so fun, wheee! This is step 2 of Morning Frost Line (20 x 20 inches, oil on wood panel). I'm working on value. As you know, I am relatively new to oil paint and I have no idea how many "steps" there are in a painting. Lots of palette knife work and I love that random, spontaneous look. In moving from colored pencil years ago to pastel, it was the looser look that appealed to me. Maybe I am making another jump from pastel to palette knife? Click on the image to enlarge.

  1. I'm glad you're having fun! Looks to me like it's becoming an incredibly beautiful painting. Love your deep values and bold color in some areas, yet you have such delicacy in some of the foliage and in the beautiful shadow line of the fence. Breathtaking, and I appreciate you posting the progress of your process!
